  • 1.  connecting servers directly to the collapsed core

    Posted 09-13-2022 04:51
    Hello community:

    I have two EX4650 with licensing, I would like to deploy them in a collapsed core architecture. I would like to know if it is possible to connect servers directly to the collapsed core. Somethig like the graph showed in the Datasheet of EX4650. In the uplink I would like to connect directly to the WAN. Any consideration?


    Best regards

    Carlos

    Hello Carlos,

    Collapsed Core architectures means that the leaves and spines are on the same layer. So usually, we connect servers on leaves, but as the switches in a collapsed core "play" leaves and spines roles, you can connect servers on it.
